first thing is to make sure you do not have any Spyware on your system..  dnload and run Spybot and/or Adaware..  (I use both to clean my systems, as they each look at different items..)

What is spyware : http://www.spychecker.com/spyware.html

SpyBot-S&D : http://www.webattack.com/download/dlspybot.shtml 

Ad-aware : http://www.webattack.com/download/dladaware.shtml 

Also, make sure you are cleaning out your Temp Folder..

Start >  Run >  %temp% (ok)

Then delete anything that is in that folder..

OMG.. Was abt to give the same suggestions but delayed.. Nice work FE.

Also try doing system file checker ( start --> run ---> sfc /scannow) and press "Enter"
Keep your 2000 CD ready

Also update your 2000 to the latest service pack if you have not done so ..
